Beanie will voice the titular Harriet, while Jane will play her nanny, Ole Golly. Lacey Chabert will voice Marion Hawthorne, the queen bee at Harriet’s school.

Here’s a plot summary: “Like the book, the series will be set in 1960s New York City. Eleven-year-old Harriet is described as fiercely independent, adventurous, and curious. More than anything, Harriet wants to be a writer, and in order to be a good writer she needs to know everything, and in order to know everything, she has to be a spy.”

The series will be written and executive produced by Will McRobb, co-creator of the classic Nickelodeon series The Adventures of Pete & Pete.

Jane Lynch has another exciting role in the works: she’s hosting this reboot of a beloved game show!
